Previous research has consistently shown evidence of decreases in physical activity levels during adolescence, particularly among girls. Understanding what contributes to these declines is essential for the development of effective programmes to promote physical activity among young people. The Physical Activity in Scottish Schoolchildren (PASS) project is a five year longitudinal study investigating patterns and determinants of physical activity among early adolescents across the primary-secondary school transition and early secondary school years. A cohort of schoolchildren was tracked from the final year of primary school (P7) to the fourth year of secondary school (S4). Data were collected annually by self-report questionnaire and in-depth interviews were conducted with a sub-sample of pupils in P7 and S2. This report presents findings from the 641 pupils who completed a questionnaire in all five survey years.
